Divination Hub

This column focuses on Various Divination practices with subtabs as well

Divination is a gathering and manufacturing skill that was developed by humans shortly after the beginning of the Sixth Age. It involves gathering Guthix’s residual life-force, which is leaking throughout Gielinor. To do this, the players gather divine energy from wisps and then use this energy to make items such as portents, signs, and divine locations.

In the Year 169 of the Fifth Age, the Assassination of Guthix took place. In Year 1 of the Sixth Age this has resulted in the manifestation of wisps and the appearance of craters throughout Gielinor. As researched by May Stormbrewer, the wisps are a fusion of memories and divine energy. The memories are remnants of Guthix’s life force, which hold his residual power within them, and were expelled from Guthix after his death and thus spread throughout the world.

Divine energy is the result of the Edicts of Guthix, which were believed to be a physical barrier around the world which prevented the Gods from entering Gielinor. Upon Guthix’s death however this barrier shattered and fell down to the surface. It is believed that the power of the shield is held within the divine energy. Divine energy and memories combined together and formed wisps.

Guthix’s death also caused the various craters to open around Gielinor. It is highly speculated that the death of Guthix has damaged the world and that damage has manifested itself as the craters. It is probable that Guthix’s death has rendered a great imbalance within Gielinor, and so the life force of the world is now “bleeding” due to this imbalance. The wisps gather around these craters as they are attracted to this life force, because this is one of the powers that Guthix used to become so powerful. This same force, now saturates the wisps as his memories.

Those who study Divination west of the Lumbridge Crater, as well as many adventurers, are trying to return the memories to the various craters as it seems that giving Guthix’s life force back to the Earth, heals it to some extent, although it is unknown whether this ritual will be able to fully restore the Anima Mundi.

It is unknown at the moment if the world can be repaired without Guthix. It has been speculated that the life force of Gielinor may merely continue to leak from the craters, resulting in further degradation of the world. The consequences of such damage is thus unknown, but is likely to be catastrophic.

Cartomancy

  • Cartomancy is card reading, similar to tarot, except an ordinary deck of playing cards is used.
  • Long before playing cards were used for games, they were used for prophesy.
  • This free cartomancy reading will provide you with helpful, relelvant information about key areas of your life.
  • The origin of playing cards is a mystery. The history of a traditional 52 card playing deck, as well as the varied meanings of the individual cards, can be traced through centuries of writings.
  • Cartomancy reached it’s height of popularity in 18th century France when noble men and women, including the Empress Josephine, regularly consulted the wisdom of Cartomancers. It is believed that a psychic Cartomancer first told Josephine of the great future awaiting her, including a marriage of fame and fortune, followed by a fall from grace.
  • The 52 playing cards we use today are believed to be directly related to the 56 cards of the Minor Arcana found in traditional tarot decks.
  • The four suits in a playing deck correlate to the four astrological elements; Clubs to Fire, Diamonds to Earth, Spades to Air, and Hearts to Water. The suits also have overlying influences that must be interpreted by the reader.
  • The 13 cards in each suite correspond to the 13 lunar cycles in each year, and the 12 court cards correspond to the 12 sun signs of the zodiac.
  • The numbered cards in a deck of playing cards are referred to as “pip cards”. Each of the pip cards provides a unique indication of events and circumstances. These cards can be used to interpret past events or foretell the future.
  • A general cartomancy reading, like the one we offer here, is a great way to sample just how useful a cartomancy reading can be.
